Happy Thanksgiving

I just wanted to write a quick post to give my official Thursday weight-in day report and to wish everyone a very happy and love-filled Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving Day 2011 Weight-In, Down 112.8 lbs in Seven Months
Today I weighed in at 171.2 (112.8lbs down from starting high of 284lbs just seven short months ago)! I am so happy and thankful that I had the opportunity to have WLS! I am a new person and am so very happy. I love me and my life and would not change my new lifestyle for any food binge or sugary food out there, but I also know now that the key is to live in balance.

I had a small breakfast today with a one scrambled egg, 1/2 cup fruit salad, and 1/3 cup of my Grandmother's recipe Meat Stuffing (only made once per year). We are going to the Mohegan Sun Casino Buffet for lunch/dinner and I am looking forward to having a reasonable meal (protein focused) and my treats will be a piece of a crepe (they have a crepe station) and a Skinny Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks! Yummy.

Beyond that I am enjoying spending time with my family and enjoying the day!

Happy Thanksgiving and remember to take time to be thankful for all that life has given you. This is a rehash from my last post, but I will share again because it is what I am Thankful for this year.

My Thanksgiving Thankful List 2011
1. My family and my beautiful partner (I consider all of my canine family members in this as well)
2. My good health and the good health of my family

4. Friends and a support system that has fostered my new lifestyle and my lifestyle changes

8. A great upbringing- parents and family who always loved, supported, and educated me
